Coming soon to a theater near you…
Mortal Engines – As someone unfamiliar with Phillip Reeves’ Mortal Engines books, this first look teaser for the Peter Jackson produced film adaptation has me simultaneously perplexed and intrigued. I just might need to dive into the books before catching this steampunk epic when it hits theaters this December.
Annihilation – The first full trailer for Alex Garland’s adaptation of Jeff VanderMeer’s series of novels presents a unique sci-fi world of environmental and biological danger and beauty. Explore this new world when the film hits theaters on February 23rd.
Oceans 8 – An all-new Oceans caper produced by Oceans trilogy creator Steven Soderbergh and directed by Hunger Games director Gary Ross, this time with an all-female gang of thieves led by Sandra Bullock. I can’t wait for this one to steal the box office this June.
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms – Disney brings the Nutcracker story to new life, but it looks a lot like the Alice films to me. Disney is strategically releasing this one right around the start of the holiday movie season in November.
Coming soon to a streaming device or TV…
